What are the pros? Excellent size, flavor & sweet
What are the cons? Takes 4-5 months of maturity.
I first planted them in September of 2015 in very loose, rock and twig free loam soil and ended up harvesting 10 inch long carrots that were around three inches thick. What I noticed was that of all the other types I have grown these carrots were the only ones to survive our freakishly hot summers. However, these carrots have an inferior taste during hot seasons but harvest them in the fall or winter and they taste fine. Plus these types of carrots take alot longer to reach a decent harvestable size. In terms of how they look the pusa asita carrots sport a purptle top with slightly purple leaves. The root itself is thick and broad from the top and then gets slimmer on the bottom. They will grow straight if given loose soil. They will grow big if left in the ground for at least four to five months in rich soil. They love full sun and cool dry weather with moderate watering. Too much water or fertilizer will cause them to split. And they taste way better if harvest during cool seasons.
